To quote the back label “an artisanal liqueur made from walnuts and distilled wine according to a generations-old Swiss-Italian recipe”. Nocino della Christina is based on California brandy infused with walnuts from the Napa Valley’s Oak Knoll District and spices from Africa, Asia and the Americas"

The label also warns of “Natural sediment present in the bottle.”

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 22/01/2013

Appearance:

Dark chestnut brown.

Aroma:

Hints of stewed pear and prune, plump sultanas and cinnamon spice on the Christmassy nose.

Taste:

Cinnamon spice and slightly caramelised sultanas dominate the palate, which perhaps lacks the nutty notes the label is suggesting.

Aftertaste:

Rich Christmas pudding with plenty of sherry and perhaps a tad too much cinnamon.
